  1. The 6z NAM once again shows this storm just kind of falling apart for the mid-Atlantic as it moves through (four runs in a row now). I wonder if it really sees something happening to the storm, or if its just stuck on a fluke loop. I know it would bum out the snow lovers, but if it keeps the freezing rain amounts down, I'll happily take the storm fizzling out (I've had enough freezing rain this season ). That said, this run also upped the snow totals for my area by about 2x...
  2. We were listed as getting 1-2" of snow. Instead, we got 0" here in east-central PA where I live. It started as some sleet and then went to light freezing rain. There's still some freezing drizzle outside, with enough of a glaze to make things look wet. It also looks like the precip is basically done for my area. 31ºF temp 30ºF dewpoint Light wind
  3. Question: Over the last three runs of the NAM, it's shown the storm's precip field falling apart rather quickly over PA. This degeneration than expands into the rest of the precip shield as the storm moves along, basically degrading the whole storm into just some scattered snow/rain/ice showers. Why? What's happening to cause this (according to the NAM)?

    Even though it's a bit late, here's what ended up happening in my neck of the woods of east-central PA... We got maybe 2-3 inches of snow before the changeover to sleet, which lasted a good few hours. In that time, I think it added up to between a half inch to an inch of sleet... and then the freezing rain came in. Thankfully, we didn't go above what looked to be about .10" of that nasty crap, but it did add one hell of shine to the snow/sleet on the ground. When the sun came up on Wednesday, it was like looking at mirrors all over the place. The snow/sleet was reflecting everything to the point of it hurting my eyes, but it made for quite a sight in large, open areas (the ice was smooth enough that you could see the branches of the trees in the reflections on the snow/sleet). The wind that followed this mess dried the roads pretty well by late afternoon, but there was still a bit of ice on the trees when I took a walk last night (I could hear it falling to the ground and shattering at times). So yeah, we thankfully didn't get hit as hard as what happened in January, but it still made a Mongolian CF of the roads for a time.

    The dry slot in PA in a huge saving grace for a lot of people right now. I know it was hinted at to varying degrees with the 3K NAM, RGEM and HRRR, but they don't always come to fruition. I'm glad this one did.

    After the botched forecast by pretty much every channel and website back in January with that bigger storm (were supposed to go to rain, but the line stopped just to my south and didn't budge all night... with Mt. Holly even cancelling the WWA despite what was happening), I REALLY don't want another long duration icing event here in east-central PA. The look of this storm does not look good for my area at all.
  7. Cool. Thanks. Shame that all they've gotten so far are snow totals. I'd really like to see just how much freezing rain we ended up with. It had to be .20".
  8. Where would I find this kind of info from Mt. Holly? I'm curious to see how much of that we had puked on us early this morning.
  9. Oh look, here comes the kick in the groin after the punch in the head...
  10. Well, here's an update from east-central PA... Not sure what the temp is. Local stations say 32ºF or 33ºF. Several sites say 34ºF or 35ºF. Not much wind at the moment, but it's still doing... something. Plenty of ice on the trees, with the smaller branches being the ones where you really see it. I don't see a lot of sagging, so I have no idea how much. The power's flickered a several times thus far, though. Wish I could find a site with visual examples of what .10", .20" and .30" of ice accrual looked like to gauge what's out there. I've tried looking on Google, but didn't find much in the way of useful pictures.
  11. Can we please start with the warm up now? The power's starting to flicker Hello? Is this thing on?
  12. It's safe to say that this freezing rain tongue that's been sitting in the same spot for the last five hours, while nearly everything around me warms up, is making me both very nervous and very irked. Why isn't this being dissolved like it is in so many other areas? Why does it keep filling back in whenever it does start to be eroded?
  13. Apparently, the night staff at Mt. Holly lack eyes...
  14. I sending good vibes your way that this damn stubborn cold air goes away soon. No one needs to be losing power with the cold and wind coming. I've watched quite a few change-over lines move on radar in the past, but I've never seen this kind of thing before. The freezing rain/sleet/mix line gets eaten away at and starts moving north. On the next radar frame, it then respawns and grows to cover even more area than it had before. It just won't leave. And if there's one thing I hate, it's an unwanted guest that refuses to take the hint and go away.
